How can you tell when someone has a dog? Don’t worry – they’ll tell you

I hadn’t seen my friend for months, but when we did meet, it wasn’t the Labour party’s problems, her MA or my house move we talked about …There is a shortage of rescue dogs in the UK, particularly staffordshire bull terriers. No one knows why. Maybe all the existing staffs lost their mojo during the first lockdown, and it has interrupted supply. People might be stockpiling staffs, ahead of Brexit shortages. This is only of the mildest imaginable interest when you are not actively seeking a rescu...

cooking with cookie!

We had a bit of excitement last week, and I realized I shared it only on Facebook. I'm sure wmtc readers want an answer to the burning question, What is Cookie up to now? This is what she's up to! She Who Cannot Be Contained must have put her paws on the kitchen counter -- I had been cooking and she was looking for morsels -- and on the way down, hit the stove, turning on a burner. The Instant Pot lid was resting on the stovetop. I was on a zoom meeting with my door shut, but Allan (who has a...

Top 5 Natural Treatments for Dogs with Cushing’s

As our dogs age, like people, they experience changes in their bodies and become more susceptible to disease and infection. Your dog growing a portly pot belly and experiencing hair loss may seem like a common sign of aging, however, when combined with an insatiable thirst and appetite, meanwhile having low energy levels, it can actually be a telling symptom of hyperadrenocorticism or Cushing’s disease. Cushing’s disease is a hormonal imbalance, usually in senior dogs. This occurs when your dog...

DuckTales Has Blown My Dang Mind

Disney’s shockingly excellent reboot of DuckTales has given us countless joys: The introduction of Huey, Dewey, and Louie’s mother Della; David Tennant voicing Scrooge McDuck; and the origin of Chip and Dale and the Rescue Rangers, just to name a few.

Study adds to calls to ban dogs from beaches during nesting season

Research reveals how ground-nesting birds frequently scared from nest by off-lead canines There is only one thing more terrifying for a nesting bird than a person walking nearby: when that two-legged beast is joined by a four-legged companion.A study of how ground-nesting birds are disturbed on beaches in Spain has revealed how they are almost always scared from their nests by passing off-lead dogs, but seem unperturbed by motorbikes, helicopters and low-flying planes.

A Newly Discovered Tick Germ Is Sickening Dogs in the U.S., Vets Say

Veterinary researchers in the U.S. say they’ve discovered a new disease-causing, tickborne bacteria in dogs.

Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov gave Vladimir Putin an alabai.

And now there's a 19-foot statue of a golden alabai in the center of a big traffic circle in Ashgabat.  Here's video from The Guardian ("Turkmenistan leader unveils giant gold statue of local dog"):    Here's weirder video:      I like that there's a homophone for "alibi." And we've been talking about bad public monuments lately, so I must say a golden dog is not so bad. Maybe we'd do better here in the West with dog statues instead of the usual human beings and, alternatively, ab...

27 photos of some of the most adorable dogs to live in the White House

President Barack Obama and his dog Bo were very close. Getty Dogs are the most popular pet for a president to have during his time in the White House. President Donald Trump broke the presidential tradition when he didn't bring a dog into the White House, saying after two years in office that he would feel "a little phony doing so." President-elect Joe Biden is poised to reset the tradition of dogs in the Executive Mansion with his two German shepherds, one of whom would be the first shelt...

"Joe is a healer, a uniter, a tested and steady hand, a person whose own experience of loss gives him a sense of purpose that will help us as a nation reclaim our own sense of purpose, and a man with a big heart who loves with abandon."

In that one crowded sentence, Kamala Harris — in her victory speech last night — stated the theme for Biden's presidency.  I see the laying-on-of-hands concept that we were talking about yesterday. Remember? The writer in The Atlantic — Franklin Foer — talked about Joe's "effort to heal... to wrap himself around others in mourning." He saw "something religious in this laying-on of hands... an act of communion." Because we are "desperate" and Joe is the "parental figure," what is required of us...

Dogs in prams: Taiwan's falling birthrate sees pets outnumbering children

Trend of canine carriers goes beyond the practical and reflects changing attitudes towards pet ownershipIn a quiet southern Taipei alleyway, an ageing golden retriever peers sleepily from a pram being pushed by his elderly owner.

Pros and Cons of Making Your Own Cat Food

Cats are much fussier eaters than dogs, which is why deciding whether to make your own cat food might be more complicated than taking the plunge into cooking for Fido. You might not save as much money making your own cat food as you would if you were preparing meals for a dog, simply because cats are much more carnivorous. However, feeding your cat dry food has the potential to set you up for expensive veterinary bills later in their lifetime. Apparently, it’s more work for the digestive system ...

Scientists piece together the story of humans and dogs

The earliest dog, not wolf, found so far comes from over 15,000 years ago.A new study tracks the travel and development of dogs since the end of the Ice Age.Insights are derived by comparing ancient canine DNA with ancient human DNA.

The oldest verified dog remains, found in Germany, are from 15,000-16,000 years ago. Much of the story remains mysterious, though. Where i...

Malia and Sasha, who’d been lobbying for a puppy since before the campaign, squealed with delight upon seeing him for the first time, letting him lick their ears and faces as the three of them rolled around on the floor.

He also gave me an added excuse to put off my evening paperwork and join my family on meandering after-dinner walks around th...
